Retail, manufacturing will be among first to reopen when California alters stay-at-home order


Retail establishments, manufacturers, offices that can’t operate remotely and public spaces will be in the first wave of workplaces to reopen in California, but the state isn’t yet ready to make that move, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Tuesday.

“We believe we are weeks, not months away from making meaningful modifications,” Newsom said, referencing the state’s stay-at-home orders designed to slow the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

Schools may reopen for an earlier school year that could start in July or August to make up for lost learning time because of the pandemic, Newsom said, although he stressed that no final decisions have been made. Retail would initially be restricted to curbside pickup, according to a series of slides shown during the Tuesday news conference.
